An Analysis of Government Immunization Program Expenditures in Lower and Lower Middle Income Countries 2006-12

This article, published in Health Policy and Planning, examines the rising costs of immunization as new, more expensive vaccines are introduced into national immunization programs. The authors estimate that, by 2015, immunization costs will likely exceed US$60 per infant, whereas in 2012, lower- and lower-middle income countries were spending around US$20 per infant. The authors also highlight the increasing financial gap due to the costs of immunization rising more rapidly than country immunization investments. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
